My best-known books are for teens, but some
are for kids from 10-14 or 8-12, and one is a picture storybook

But did you know that you can order books on-line from the websites of most independent bookstores as well as from the big on-line and off-line chains like Amazon and Barnes & Noble?
'Tis true--and most "indie" stores are terrific at giving readers one-on-one help when it comes to finding or choosing books. They're also great supporters of writers and their work. So if you can, "Try Indies First," s the saying goes--especially for new and recent titles.
My Local Indie Stores
It's a sad truth of the publishing world, but in these cost-
and budget-conscious days, books tend to go out of print quickly,
which means that it soon becomes impossible for readers to buy
